Sharp drops in the stock market have brought home to young and old alike the risks of unwise money management. Now we hear about youngsters running into ever more serious debt with credit cards. Managing money is an important skill however old we are and courses on it are available at the HKFYG's Continuous Learning Centre.
Good news is that underprivileged teenagers will get advice on saving with a pioneer government campaign next year. Hong Kong's more affluent youngsters get wise about the stock market and investments with courses organized by banks, chartered accountants and NGOs. We think every child needs to know what money means, how to look after it and make it grow. Will you partner us and help them? Phone Bonnie, 3755 7101, to discuss how to get started.
